N600K Update

March 19, 2020

 In light of the fact that USCIS has closed all it's field offices for the foreseeable future, it looks like this process might take longer than we'd ever imagined.  If I'm being honest, I really thought that Earth and I would be home by now, but instead, here we are, still in the Marshall Islands and buckling down for the long term.
  In an interesting twist, perhaps because the office personnel have more time to process cases now that they're not doing interviews, the average processing time has gone down drastically to 5.5 months and the date of inquiry has moved forward by a year.
  It's so ironic that we're overdue to hear about our case now and genuinely could get a decision any day but aren't able to actually have the interview.

A Quiet Night at Home

N600K Update

Things have been quiet here because there just hasn't been anything to report.  I checked Earth's case status today and while there was a date change, there was no new information.

N600K Update

January 8, 2020

   I checked Earth's case status today, like I do every day, and was somewhat surprised to see that it had been updated.  There was no new information on the main page or the document page but at least someone has changed the date on the file.

  The current average processing time for this kind of case is 5 months and we're one week away from that.  Of course, we have no way of knowing how long any of this could take and no recourse if we feel that things are being dragged out.  Since this is my first time filing online, I also don't know if our interview notice will be listed on the document page of Earth's online file before I receive a paper copy here on Kwaj.  As always, I'll keep you posted if anything changes.
